This year RobotWorx is investing in the local community and the next generation with a donation to the Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio (JANCO).
JANCO is a nonprofit organization dedicated to equipping students in grades K-12 with life skills. It offers hands-on programming that targets three things: workforce readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.
"We are always looking for ways to support student organizations and help in their achievement," RobotWorx Marketing Director, Stefani Wanner said. "We are excited to contribute to the Junior Achievement program! They are a promising group providing students with the right decision-making skills and education they need to prepare them for success in their future. RobotWorx knows the future relies on the minds of the youth, and is honored to aid in their success!"
Community volunteers and educators teach the practical application programs to school students in 12 North Central Ohio counties, including Ashland, Crawford, Knox, Marion, Morrow, and Richland. During the 2009-2010 school year, JANCO had a total of 21,975 kids participating in the programming. This year, they plan to continue increasing that number.
